  • Dangerous Passions Deadly Sins

    $17.00

    This volume unpacks the psychological insights found in the writings of three early monks–Evagrius Ponticus (4th century), John Cassian (5th century), and Gregory the Great (6th century)–to help us appreciate the relevance of these monastic writers and apply their wisdom to our own spiritual and psychological well-being. The book addresses each of the seven deadly sins, offering practical guidance from the early monastic tradition for overcoming these dangerous passions.

    As Dennis Okholm introduces key monastic figures, literature, and thought of the early church, he relates early Christian writings to modern studies in psychology. He shows how ancient monks often anticipated the insights of contemporary psychology and sociology, exploring, for example, how their discussions of gluttony compare with current discussions regarding eating disorders. This book will appeal to readers interested in spirituality, early monastic resources, and ancient wisdom for human flourishing, as well as students of spirituality and spiritual formation.

  • Evangelicals And Scripture

    $32.00

    By definition, a high view of Scripture inheres in evangelicalism. However, there does not seem to be a uniform way to articulate an evangelical doctrine of Scripture.

    Taking up the challenge, Vincent E. Bacote, Laura C. Miguilez and Dennis L. Okholm present twelve essays that explore in depth the meaning of an evangelical doctrine of Scripture that takes seriously both the human and divine dimensions of the Bible. The essays, selected from the presentations made at the 2002 Wheaton Theology Conference, approach this vital subject from three directions. Stan Grenz, Bruce McCormack and Donald Dayton consider the history of evangelical thinking on the nature of Scripture. John Brogan, Kent Sparks, J. Daniel Hays and Richard Schultz address the nature of biblical authority. Finally, Bruce Benson, John Franke, Daniel Treier and David Alan Williams explore the challenge of hermeneutics, especially as it relates to interpreting Scripture in a postmodern context.

    Together these essays provide a window into current evangelical scholarship on the doctrine of Scripture and also advance the dialogue about how best to construe our faith in the Word of God, living and written, that informs not only the belief but also the practice of the church.
